Ludi--your needlework is spectacular...not sure if people in this gallery aregoing to believe this, but folks, she is a newbie at it...unbelievable!!!  

I love the face and the pearls and the stumpwork...beautiful and sort of creepy at the same time! Grin

Thank you!  Cheesy  She's not even slightly creepy compared to a "real" Fiji Mermaid (blarg!)  Shocked

So true! The real one is uber yucky. Still love her, though.
And I looked up pygmy marmosets...they are utterly adorable and my heart just fluttered seeing how fragile and sweet they look.

I thought about doing a classic feejee mermaid but decided I couldn't do her justice in her horribleness, so I went with the cute "live" one.    Smiley

I think the prettiest interpretation of the fiji mermaid (aside from yours, of course!) is one I found on Rogue Taxidermy here:
http://www.roguetaxidermy.com/popup_image.php?imagename=gallery_images/528_78712.jpg&title=Fiji%20Mermaid%20%28Ningyo%29,%2049%20inch

This guy is really skilled (and a bit whacky, but in a good way) and comes up with some pretty cool sculptures like his dragon. You'll find that on his site as well.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Ludi, you knocked my socks off, AGAIN! She's just perfect. So, when can I come over and take embroidery lessons from you?
